Couch Potato Portfolio: How to set it up

TD Mutual FundsTD Mutual Funds

TD e-Series Funds

Monthly contributors: For purposes of illustration, we’ll use TD eFunds, because they’re particularly cheap. As above, you start by transferring your money into the account and splitting it up into five piles:

One pile

• (20% of your money) goes in the TD Canadian Index Fund.

The second pile

• (20%) goes in the TD U.S. Index Fund.

The third pile

• (20%) goes in the TD International Index Fund.

Both the fourth and fifth piles

• (40%) go in the TD Canadian Bond Index Fund.

Once a year buy and sell your funds (or add new money) to get them back to their original split.

That’s it. Now sit back, put up your feet and enjoy life as a couch potato.
